He also appointed a few choreographers who worked on a daily basis with Girish in order to prepare him well for all formats of dances that were required for films. Girish was also overweight and had to take up to bodybuilding during his three years' training sessions. A trainer from South Africa was brought on board to check Girish's fitness. It was one of his greatest achievements that he developed six pack abs within 3 weeks. Regarding his looks in Ramaiya Vastavaiya, Prabhu Deva was reported to be happy and satisfied. For the first appearance of Girish in Ramaiya Vastavaiya, director Prabhu Deva and cinematographer Kiran Deohans were planning a special introductory scene which is completely new to Bollywood. Marking his first ever appearance on the big screen, Girish made a dare devilish surfing sequence that hasn't been attempted in films so far. International surfing expert Christopher Bryan from Hawaii, USA was given the charge of the underwater sequences with Girish, which were shot in Australia. Girish was trained at Mantra Surf Club near [Mangalore] for this. Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama commented on his performance: "Girish being a first-timer, there are some rough edges, but the fact is, he's photogenic and goes through the rigmarole with confidence." Sarit Ray of Hindustan Times gave a less favourable review of his portrayal, saying "His dancing, unfortunately is only slightly less stiff than his acting." The film earned little praise from critics and underperformed at the box office.
